Mental Health and Well-Being
At Chiltern Academy, we firmly believe that nurturing good mental health is essential for fostering healthy relationships, setting positive goals, and maintaining high expectations for learning. Mental health is a broad and encompassing term that encompasses our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It has a profound impact on how we perceive and evaluate situations, how we think and feel, and how we behave. Moreover, it plays a pivotal role in how we cope with stress, connect with others, and make wise, health-conscious decisions. We recognise that mental health holds significance at every stage of life, spanning from childhood and adolescence to adulthood.
Within our school community, we are dedicated to actively promoting good mental health throughout the school day. We understand that students may encounter challenges in maintaining their mental well-being, and we are fully equipped to support them. Our school offers a range of resources and strategies to assist students facing difficulties with their mental health.
